In this study, we implement a framework that directly links a general tensor-based shell finite element to NURBS geometric modeling. Generally, in CAD system the surfaces are represented by B-splines or non-uniform rational B-spline(NURBS) blending functions and control points. Here, NURBS blending functions are composed by two parameters defined in local region. A general tensor-based shell element also has a two-parameter representation in the surfaces, and all the computations of geometric quantities can be performed in local surface patch. Naturally, B-spline surface or NURBS function could be directly linked to the shell analysis routine. In our study, we use NLib(NURBS libraray) to generate NURBS for shell finite analysis. The NURBS can be easily generated by interpolating or approximating given set of data points through NLib.
